Kiswe Named to Fast Company's List of World's Most Innovative Companies
Live Streaming Platform Recognized in Live Events Category for Creating Market-Defining Digital Fan Experiences
The list honors the businesses that have not only found a way to be resilient in the past year, but also turned those challenges into impact-making processes. These companies did more than survive, they thrived—making an impact on their industries and culture as a whole.
In the past 18 months Kiswe has helped the world’s most popular musicians, performers, sports leagues and networks overcome unprecedented difficulties and reinvent live events for the modern consumer. Its 11-times patented technology has powered a world record setting concert with Grammy-nominated BTS, brought the PGA Tour to Twitter in a first ever multicast with 18 broadcasters and 9 streams and helped the prestigious Tour of Flanders trailblaze the first ever professional virtual cycling race.
Kiswe is a cloud-based video platform company that offers remote live video production, multi-view global streaming and audience interactive features, creating world-class experiences that make fans feel seen, valued and connected with their favorite artists, performers or sports teams.
Kiswe also recently partnered with Big Hit Entertainment to create VenewLive, a digital live streaming platform that delivers an immersive concert experience to global audiences. Kiswe's innovative multi-view and fan engagement solution has powered VenewLive, equipping artists with the technology to tell their stories and connect with fans in a creative and authentic way.
“We are honored to be recognized among the world’s most innovative companies,” said Kiswe CEO Mike Schabel. “We will continue to break new ground as we define the global digital fan experience market.”
Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking businesses across the globe and industries.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
“In a year of unprecedented challenges, the companies on this list exhibit fearlessness, ingenuity, and creativity in the face of crisis,” said Fast Company Deputy Editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with Senior Editor Amy Farley.
Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2021) is now available online here, as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning March 16, 2021. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
